Hahaha, “this is probably the first time we’ve ever sold a vacuum sealer that’s NEW and NOT REFURBISHED.” You guys are a laff riot!! (I think the one I have was bought from Meh! about a year+ ago, refurb’d, and about half this price, and it works like a champ. Suckas.) The local online storage-room auction place typically sells NIB vacuum sealers for ~$20, too. Nearly every week. $50 is way too much for this, guys. Seriously.
@cbl_wv The real deals will happen when all of the broken “new” units from this sale get re-turned, re-furbished, re-sold to Meh for pennies on the dollar, and then re-listed on Meh so they can be re-bought for 30% off…
@ciabelle@warpedrotors I think in this case it was a very specific Chinese guy. To wit, the one who wrote that phrase, which should, but alas will likely never, be the name of a mediocre underground alt-folk metal band.
Meh, you forget yourself! Being a daily sales site means that you’re trying to move one thing quickly with steep price cuts. When you sell something we can get everyday all day for 9% or 16% less, you miss your own point of why we come here.
C’mon, I got a refurb Foodsaver model for <½ this price (here!) a couple years ago. It works GREAT, and bag supplies are a bargain at Costco. This one is cheaper than fancier Foodsaver models @ retail, but I would stick with a name-brand unit, even refurbed.
This technology is great for sous vide cooking, and also helps meats last a LOT longer in the freezer.
